Dutch Competition

Ajax made a weak start in the First Division West II competition and after 10 matches Ajax had already lost three times and played two draws. Still league leader Feyenoord was still within reach and after Ajax beat Feyenoord in Amsterdam in round 12 with 5-0 the gap was only two points. Ajax continued to win, only played one more draw, but that was in the last round when the division championship was already won. In the champions competition there was no team sticking out and even though Ajax lost once and played two draws, they became the new domestic champion relatively easy.

Beker

The Dutch Cup only started in April when Ajax was already participating in the Champions competition. Ajax did not participate in the Dutch Cup.

Lineup

There were some changed throughout the season on various positions so that Ajax did not really play with the same lineup for a long series of matches. The following players played most: Gerrit Keizer (goalkeeper), Henk Blomvliet and Dick Been (defense), Ko Loois, Wim Anderiesen Sr. and Jan Schubert (midfield and stopper spil), Gerrit Fischer, Gerrit Gischler, Rinus Bijl, Piet van Reenen, and Erwin van Wijngaarden (attack). Wim Anderiesen Sr. was captain. Dick Been was suspended for 4 matches halfway through the division competition, which was resolved by having Jan Schubert play left back and Piet Leemhuis (11) taking up Schuberts position on the midfield. This change went very well and even after the suspension was over, Ajax played with this lineup for a while. In the attack there were mostly changes in the left and right inner positions. Besides Piet van Reenen (who also changed positions with Rinus Bijl sometimes) and Gerrit Gischler amonst others the following players also played in these positions: Henk Blomvliet (when he was not needed in defense), Louis Fraenkel (8), Tjeerd Aukema (4), Cor ter Horst (4), Karel ter Horst (4), and Jan Gerritsen (2). The following players also played official matches: Jan Stam (6), Jan van Diepenbeek (2), Joop Steunenberg (2), Ger Beumer (1), Jaap Hordijk (1), and Jan Potharst (1).

Coach

Jack Reynolds was the trainer.

Ter Horst Brothers

Both Karel and Cor Ter Horst played for Ajax this season. Because often in the lineups in newspapers only the last name Ter Horst was used, the information is not reliable.
